Curtain Bluff, an All-Inclusive Caribbean Classic, Is Better Than Ever

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - January 12, 2020

It’s not easy to become a classic. 

It’s not just half a century of luxury, or years of visits by legendary names. 

A classic resort is about a vision, a look, a philosophy — and relentless execution. 

Being flanked by two of the region’s most scenic beaches doesn’t hurt, either.

Curtain Bluff, one of Antigua’s iconic resorts, has long been a Caribbean signature, a resort the very mention of which seems to stir emotions in travelers. 

Set on the southern coast of Antigua and founded by the late Howard Hulford (whose wife Chelle still lives in the resort’s Bluff House — and still hosts a weekly cocktail party for guests), Curtain Bluff is the sort of grand property that doesn’t seem to exist any more. 

And yet it has never felt more current, more “now.”

After several years of upgrades that included changes to even the very smallest of details, Curtain Bluff is, well, better than ever.

The property, which includes a mix of 72 rooms and suites, all of which boast beachfront views, is still the luxurious, indulgent space it always was — but it’s got an even more sparkling look to it. 

What hasn’t changed is the Hulford vision of hospitality, of serene, beautiful luxury, of a place that makes you feel something. 

And it’s still delivered in a rather unique way — an all-inclusive that never feels like one, a luxury resort whose warmth makes you feel as if you’re staying in your own private club.

And its rooms, always the sort of lavish accommodations you’d expect from a legend, are fresh and gorgeous, with little touches like espresso machines, somehow preserving the jet-set look with a modern sheen. (That’s without mentioning the suites, particularly the property’s splurge-worthy wing, the Hulford Collection, a luxury oasis punctuated by plunge-pools perched above the ocean.)

It’s that duality that manages to extend itself across the resort – timeless and fresh, family-friendly yet perfect for adults seeking seclusion; apt for active travelers (the Caribbean’s best tennis center is on hand) and those merely in search of a week of lazing on the sand. 

And that’s certainly true of the all-inclusive program. It’s an all-inclusive experience that doesn’t feel like one, where you always feel like you’re being indulged.

It’s at once the sort of rarefied space we dream of — and an energetic, crisp resort ripe for honeymoons and experiential travelers alike. 

In other words — it’s a classic.
